Product description

Review

"Forward's book is a knockout. In science fiction there is only a handful of books that stretch the mind--and this is one of them!"
--ARTHUR C. CLARKE

"Bob Forward writes in the tradition of Hal Clement's Mission Gravity and carries it a giant step (how else?) forward."
--ISAAC ASIMOV

"Dragon's Egg is superb. I couldn't have written it; it required too much real physics."
--LARRY NIVEN

"This is one for the real science-fiction fan."
--FRANK HERBERT

"Robert L. Forward tells a good story and asks a profound question. If we run into a race of creatures who live a hundred years while we live an hour, what can they say to us or we to them?"
--FREEMAN J. DYSON
   Author of Disturbing the Universe

"Forward has impeccable scientific credentials, and . . . big, original, speculative ideas."
--The Washington Post

From the Publisher

I joined Random House in 1995 as General Manager for the House of Collectibles imprint. The offices for House of Collectibles are right next door to Del Rey and, since I have a passion for science fiction, I moseyed over and asked Veronica Chapman, a Del Rey editor, for a book recommendation. She asked if I was looking for a fantasy book or a hard science fiction book. I indicated the later and without hesitation she recommended Dragon's Egg.

Wow! What a truly great book! It is so brimming with new ideas and new perspectives that it literally expands your mind. It opens your eyes to new possibilities. Every few pages draw another exclaimation of "Wow!"

I wish I could say, "I liked the book so much, I bought the company." But next best thing did happen: I became General Manager of Del Rey. (Please note that your results from reading this book may vary.) Thank you, Veronica, for this fantastic recommendation which I whole-heartedly pass along to one and all.
                                                --Tim Kochuba, General Manager --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
